Physiotherapy

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a regulated health care profession that is focused on evaluating, restoring and maintaining physical function and movement.  Physiotherapists graduate from a university Medical Faculty and have extensive training in anatomy, diagonosis, exercise physiology, and treatment of various medical ailments and injuries.

We assist our clients in returning to activities/sports safely and quickly through education, therapeutic exercise, and hands on treatment.  We also assist our clients in returning to work after an injury by facilitating a safe return to work plan in partnership with your doctor, employer, and case manager.

What to expect on your first visit.

During your Initial Visit you will be asked to fill out a basic Patient Information Form and to read a Clinic Information Sheet. If you have a claim through Workers Compensation then you will be asked to fill out a slightly different Information Form. The clinic information sheet will provide you with basic information regarding your assessment and treatment and the information form will provide us with such information as your address and telephone number.

Next your therapist will assess your injury/complaint, in one of our private rooms, and in conjunction with you will develop a treatment plan to assist in your recovery.

 

What kinds of treatments should I expect? 

Treatments are individualized for the client and for the injury.  They may consist of:

  • The use of heat or cold.
  • Manual Therapy - Gentle movment of the injured area to promote recovery.
  • Interferential current, TENS, or muscle stimulation, to help ease your pain.
  • Ultrasound or laser to promote healing.
  • Acupuncture.
  • Personalized exercise in our large rehab gym and home exercise.
